Stages Age Description
An infant progresses from reflexive, instinctual action at
birth to the beginning of symbolic thought. The infant
constructs an understanding of the world by
coordinating sensory experiences with physical actions.
2 to 7
The child begins to represent the world with words and
images, reflect increased symbolic thinking and go
beyond the connection of sensory information and
7 to 11
The child can now reason logically about concrete events
and classify objects into different sets.
The adolescent reasons in more abstract and logical
ways. Thought is more idealistic.

20. My Idea of Education
This paper was written by Ashley Montagu
describing what he feels about how education
should be taught in schools.
He believes as an anthropologist, that the
human are distinct from other creatures
because of their ability to educate themselves
and the most important is the psychological
need for love.
21. Our Brain
He says that the human brain is so flexible and malleable and
the most educable of all that they can turn accidents into
For e.g. when Newton was sitting under a tree an apple fell
on Newton’s head and he turned this accident into an
But not everyone has the same capacity of thinking like this
because when some brains arrive at truth and conclusions
others might think it as utterly impossible. For e.g. When the
flying machines were invented, leading experts of the world
thought it was a physical impossibility.
22. Children and their Ways
Ashley Montagu says that we should recognize this
ability especially when dealing with children because
their brain is the most educable of all.
In schools we should not force the children
to learn the ways of an adult but let them
learn in their own ways. He says we need to
grow up into children and not adults.
Though many teachers are capable of recognizing
the fact that every child is different but because they
are within a system where the higher officials fail to
understand the needs of the children and the
teachers, they are rendered helpless.
The most important education a teacher can give to
a child is on being human, because whatever the
child learns in the class will determine how he is
going to be in the future.
24. Education is all about being human
Meaning developing traits that are uniquely human for the benefit of
individual and others
1. These traits are Need to LOVE
2. Need to THINK soundly
3. Need to LEARN, etc.
Most important of all human basic psychology needs is, the need
Research found that baby not only want to be loved but also learn to love.
LOVE is the need of students and teacher ought to love his/her students
Meaning child who hasn’t been loved is biochemically, physiologically, and
psychologically very different from who has been loved
25. LOVE definition
LOVE is the ability to communicate by demonstrative acts to
others our involvement in their welfare.
Love should be the first and foremost priority teacher
ought to teach; and reading, writing, and arithmetic are of
Meaning this idea will stand a chance of solving most of
the problems that bedevil the world.
This is my idea of education by Ashley Montagu
27. Women’s place in man’s life cycle
“Arguing that Kohlberg’s model of moral reasoning is based on
male perspective and addresses the rights of the individual,
Gilligan suggests that moral reasoning from a female perspective
stresses the individual’s responsibility to other people.
Life- cycle theories, she concludes, should encompasses the
experiences of both sexes”.
29. Carol Gilligan
Born on November 28, 1936,
in New York City.
In 1970 she became a
research assistant for the great
theorist of moral
In 1982 she published a book

32. Gilligan's Theory and Education
• Carol Gilligan's theory helps both men and women in seeing
each other in a different perspective.
• In terms of education everyone should focus on it and
everyone's need for education is important.
• A person should not put the needs of others in front of their
own, especially in the case of education.

Notas del editor
Morality refers to a doctrine or system of beliefs, values, or principles that govern human conduct in two ways: by prescribing positive behaviors that benefit others and by proscribing negative actions that harm others.
Level 1: Preconventional
Level 2: Conventional
Level 3: Post conventional
Her theory is divided into three stages of moral development beginning from " selfish , to social or conventional morality , and finally to post conventional or principled morality . " Women must learn to deal to their own interests and to the interests of others . She thinks that women hesitate to judge because they see the complexities of relationships.
Level 1: This is how everyone is as children .In this transitional phase, the person 's attitude is considered selfish, and the person sees the connection between themselves and others.
Level 2: Gilligan says this is shown in the role of Mother & Wife. Situation sometimes carries on to ignoring needs of self. In this transitional phase, tensions between responsibility of caring for others and caring for self are faced.
Level 3: Gilligan has tried to show that women move from a conventional to a postconventional mode of thinking
Kohlberg’s moral development: At stage 1 children think of what is right as that which authority says is right. Doing the right thing is obeying authority and avoiding punishment. At stage 2, children are no longer so impressed by any single authority; they see that there are different sides to any issue. Since everything is relative, one is free to pursue one's own interests, although it is often useful to make deals and exchange favors with others.
At stages 3 and 4, young people think as members of the conventional society with its values, norms, and expectations. At stage 3, they emphasize being a good person, which basically means having helpful motives toward people close to one At stage 4, the concern shifts toward obeying laws to maintain society as a whole.
At stages 5 and 6 people are less concerned with maintaining society for it own sake, and more concerned with the principles and values that make for a good society. At stage 5 they emphasize basic rights and the democratic processes that give everyone a say, and at stage 6 they define the principles by which agreement will be most just.
Gilligan's theory focused on both care-based morality and justice-based morality. Carol Gilligan has argued that Kohlberg's theory is overly androcentric. Kohlberg's theory was initially developed based on empirical research using only male participants; Gilligan argued that it did not adequately describe the concerns of women. Kohlberg stated that women tend to get stuck at level 3, focusing on details of how to maintain relationships and promote the welfare of family and friends. Men are likely to move on to the abstract principles, and thus have less concern with the particulars of who is involved. Consistent with this observation, Gilligan's theory of moral development does not focus on the value of justice. She developed an alternative theory of moral reasoning based on the ethics of caring
